Bee Friendly Vineyards
There is a large land-use change happening in in Southern Oregon. Large amounts of acreage historically fallow, in pears, or in pasture, is being transitioned into wine grapes. Native and non-native floral resources are often removed, which can have an adverse effect on our bees and other pollinators.
We are proud to announce a pilot project with Irvine & Roberts Vineyards in Ashland, Oregon. Starting in 2019 we will be looking for win-win solutions to feed pollinators, stabilize and build soil, and reduce inputs that can be harmful to beneficial insects. Plan to attend the Western Apicultural Society conference in July of 2019 to get a tour of our progress and enjoy some delicious wine.
